My 1st Visitor from Home

July 3-5 (Fri-Sun): Buddy Weekend

Last weekend was July 4th weekend here but for hubby & I, it was Buddy weekend. =P Hubby flew to San Jose to attend his best friend's wedding, and just as I thought I would be spending the weekend alone, my buddy from home (Penang) decided to make a trip to Huntsville for a visit!! So I officially hosted my very first VIP here in the US!!

To be honest, I've never really thought anyone from home (apart from family) would ever travel all the way here to visit. After all, I'm in Alabama, not NY or LA. No don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with this place, just that it's not somewhere people will purposely stop by when they visit the US. So of course I was more than happy to have a friend visiting, within 7 months since I moved here!! 

Last November when she sent me off at the airport. I really didn't expect that we would meet again so soon, moreover in the US!!

Managed to 'force' her to take all these selfies with me...muahaha!! =P Still kinda hard to believe how everything played out, and glad we made this meet up happen...hahaha!! =P Certainly enjoyed one whole weekend of company and endless chats!

Made up this room to welcome our first guest. =)

Friday night dinner at this Korean restaurant that she found online. Bibimbap, jajangmyeon, tteokbokki, kimchi...yumss! Once again proved that I'm a lousy tour!!

Instead of visiting tourist attractions, I brought her on a tour of my university and workplace...haha!

This is how we celebrated 4th of July...hahaha!! Who needs fireworks when I have this chef 'imported' from Penang to make 蛋炒饭 for dinner!! 

Drove up to Nashville on Sunday...her 'workplace' for the next 3 days. Spent our Sunday afternoon shopping at Opry Mills outlet. =P

Had dinner at her hotel before driving back. I like this home-style-minimalist design.

俗语说:有朋自远方来,不亦乐乎。这次难得朋友因为工作大老远飞到美国,还特意抽空来探访,真的有够朋友哦! 其实我俩都算蛮幸运,进入了这个工作团队后得到了很多的机会和眷顾,所以我们常会互相提醒要感恩知足,不强求,能在工作中找到天时、地利、人和,就更加要懂得珍惜。虽然这两天的时间咻一下就过去了,不过我们很快就会再见面,期待几个月后再聚,等你请我吃大餐咯! :P
